  1. Go to the contributions section, search on "gift voucher," "gift card," and so forth. You'll find several add-ons that will allow you to do something close to what you wish to do, however, I don't think any of them will automatically credit anyone for signing up a new account. I could be wrong on that, there may be one that will. At worst, the customer would need to wait for you to manually add the gift card or voucher, or whatever you decide to use. If it were me getting $100 worth of free stuff, I can't say I'd mind terribly waiting overnight. heheh You didn't mention the URL of the site where you're doing this promotion. ;) Namasté, Russ

    Header Tags SEO

    Thanks, Jack. I bet you're right, other languages hadn't crossed my mind, as I only use English. And spot-checking some products, they all seem to have a correct title, meta keywords and descriptions, so that must be it. I'm still getting some duplicate tag warnings on Google, but that appears to be due to product listing pages that are sorted in different ways. I didn't realize Google would do that when crawling the site. I'll have to look into blocking those pages or something, as I definitely don't want to get kicked off Google for spamming keywords or some such. Namasté, Russ

    Header Tags SEO

    I'm having some difficulty filling tags automatically, or I'm misunderstanding something somewhere. I've run the "Fill Tags" several times, and I've manually added some tags via admin->categories->product edit. So, whenever I go to the "Page Control" page, I still get the red error message up top saying Found Missing Tags: Products table has 78 items with missing meta tag information.Categories table has 26 items with missing meta tag information. In "Page Control" for product_info.php, I have Category checked, sort order 1; Product checked, sort order 2; Root checked, sort order 10. Running "Fill Tags" with "fill only empty tags" goes really quick, and then returns about 78 products with "The name for this item is missing." So do I need to go thru and manually tag every product? Or am I missing something somewhere else? I don't think I've even listed 78 products, 39 sounds closer, and 26 is twice the number of categories that I have. I just counted. I don't get it. Thanks. Namasté, Russ EDIT - Looking at the "headertags" table in phpMyAdmin, I see that most of the pages are listed 3 times, some are listed twice. What did I do? And what should I do to fix it?

    osC reCaptcha

    Whoops. This post was originally regarding a reCaptcha box not appearing on the contact_us page, but in looking again, I discovered that I'd inserted the code from the install instructions in the wrong place. I moved the code to the correct location, everything's peachy now. My mistake, I apologize for cluttering the thread for this excellent add-on. Namasté, Russ

    OSC Socializer v1.0

    Nice add-on, I like it. However, the only way to close the pop-up as it is, is by clicking the actual "CLOSE" button in the top right. I know somewhere, I've seen coding to make a pop-up close when clicked inside or outside, and of course, we wouldn't want to close this one onClick inside (other than the X), but I would like to make it close if clicked outside the window. I didn't bookmark where I saw that coding, and don't recall where it was, and I'm absolutely not qualified to try coding it myself. I did go ahead and try, and I failed miserably and broke the whole thing. LOL Anyway, what code would I add in what spot, to make the Socializer window close if the user clicks outside the window? Any takers? Namasté, Russ

    OK...I started over with the index page, followed the install instructions, and now I have products appearing again. By cracky, I think I've got it now. I was having some trouble getting the tags to show up, but I think I have that sorted now. Thanks, Jack, for being so patient with me, and for providing all these awesome stuffs for us newbs. I think Ultimate SEO URLs is going to be next on my list, hopefully I won't need to ask 437 questions on that one. ;) Namasté, Russ

    Header Tags SEO

    OK. I've gone back over my installation, re-uploaded the files from the install package, re-read every text file included in the package, and I'm still having problems. Chief among the problems is that my products don't show up when a category is clicked, except for a couple categories now. Most vexing, indeed. Here's a link to my site again: http://www.utopiawellness.com If you click on "Spa Sessions," the page loads with no Title, Keyword, or Description tags, but the Description text that was input from admin/categories appears at the top, followed by the social bookmarks. Between this description and bookmarks, there should be three (3) products, but there are none. All my category pages display this same behavior, with a couple exceptions. "Detox/Cleansing" doesn't have any products added yet, so there shouldn't be any products showing, and there are none. However, "Weight Loss" shows the two products that should be there, and "Wellness Supplements" shows some products, as well as the sub-categories that should be there. BUT, if you click any of those sub-cats to see all the products of a particular brand, it reverts to the same format as "Spa Sessions," no meta tags, no products, just the heading and social bookmarks. In the Trace Minerals sub-cat, there are no products yet, so it should display the message stating that "There are no products in this category," but it doesn't. The two remaining categories don't have sub-cats, and behave the same as "Spa Sessions." Everything in admin appears (to me) to be functioning properly, no error messages, no SQL tep_stops nor anything of that nature. I followed the instructions in "HowToOperate.txt," fill all tags, etc, but still have the same results on the catalog pages. I am completely befuddled. I have no idea why this would be happening, or how to go about making it right. I am somewhat surprised that in almost a year of use, and over 80 pages of thread, no one else has experienced the same issue(s). Seems to be just my luck (or ignorance), I guess. I've tried to describe the issue(s) as thoroughly as possible, if there's other information I should provide, just let me know. At this point, I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get this functioning properly. Please advise. Namasté, Russ

    Ok, so I am stupid. :blink: Be that as it may, I understand that changing the categories.php in admin doesn't change anything on the "live store" side. What I don't understand is why my products would all disappear from their live category pages. I started installing this package on Friday, didn't have time to do anything with it over the weekend, and honestly don't think I even checked any "live" pages in the interim to see if anything was happening. I waited until this morning, when I thought I was done installing, to start checking things. I shouldn't do these things unless I have time to just sit down and go, start to finish. At any rate, I will go back over the install step by step to see if I've missed something. It's obvious now that I have missed something, and likely more than one thing. I did just check a few files to make sure I didn't get one of the various header_tags.php files in the wrong folder, for instance, but haven't found a culprit thus far. I will keep double checking my installation, just thought someone might know an obvious answer to why my products all went somewhere other than where they should be. I searched this thread, too, thinking that if my products disappeared, someone else's might have as well, but I didn't find any such posts. I apologize for being so thick-headed, and appreciate any further assistance. Namasté, Russ PS - The Site In Question is "live," but thank heavens, has not been actively promoted as yet. That's why I haven't set up a "test bed" site, or installed XAMP or similar for testing. I should probably do that, too, tho. I didn't forsee having so many problems, but then again, no one expects The Spanish Inquisition. <_<

    Geez, I'm starting to feel like a simpleton. For whatever reason, the categories.php file included in the RC2 is working in my admin section just fine. All my add-ons appear to be functioning as normal. But now I notice that on the live site, no products are showing up when a category is selected. http://www.utopiawellness.com For instance, if you click on "Hemi-Sync CDs," 12 products should show up, but they don't. Also, the "default" title, description and keywords are showing in the source, after I put in a custom description in admin/categories. The "Header Tags Category Description" shows up at the top of the page, followed by the Social Bookmark links, but no products. None of the code to display the products shows up in the source, either. If I go directly to a product's info page, the meta tags are like: <title>products new home - Fat Grabbers</title> <meta name="Description" content="products new description - Benefits: •Helps decrease the body's absorption of fat. •Helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Fa" /> <meta name="Keywords" content="products new keywords1,keywords2 , Fat Grabbers" /> Please tell me I've overlooked something relatively simple, and that I'm not completely stupid. I feel fairly stupid at this point. LOL Namasté, Russ

    OK, then I guess I could try going from a different angle. Rather than modifying my categories file with the HTSEO stuff, I'll use the file included with HTSEO, and add the modifications that I had before, one at a time, and see how that goes. Sound logical? Namasté, Russ EDIT: I'm still seeing the other add-ons in the Categories section, Specials By Category, Define Mainpage, Online Gift Cards, etc, all show up and appear to be working. Is that normal, or does it sound like I'm putting a categories.php in the wrong place?

    Thanks, Jack. I installed the categories.php from the RC2 folder in the install package, and I no longer get the error message previously referenced. Should I just leave that file there as it is, or do I need to continue troubleshooting my modified categories.php? In my previous post, I should have said there is no difference between my categories.php and the one from the install package AT LINE 728. There are many other differences, due to other add-ons, I'd presume. Namasté, Russ

    I was able to fix the first error in my categories.php file, now I'm getting a new one. In the admin side, if I click on "Catalog," the URL it tries to go to is: www . utopiawellness.com/admin/categories.php?selected_box=catalog I seem to recall reading that if the URL includes categories.php, I've done something wrong.

I'll continue poking around, if anyone sees the problem, I'd appreciate any help.

    "Dynamenu" for osCommerce

    I commented out the bit with the original cat box, thus: /* if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) { echo tep_cache_categories_box(); } else { include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'categories.php'); } */ then added the dm box with the include line as you indicated. This seemed to get rid of the original cat box, and displayed the dm menu in its place. I didn't notice any changes on other parts of the site as a result. However, I had problems with the dm menu which caused me to forego it, at least for now. Wish I could be of more assistance, and good luck to you. Namasté, Russ

    "Dynamenu" for osCommerce

    This is a most triumphantly excellent contribution, Nate. However, after browsing this whole thread, I still haven't seen a solution to my slight little problem. I have my CSS set to underline links on hover, and when hovering on any category or sub-category, it appears that 6 blank spaces are being added to the end of each name. So, everything looks great and works fine, it just looks funny when mousing over the menu, to have that line running off into, well...space. Link for reference I'm a newb, and can't seem to find where to look for (and dispatch) these s. TIA Namasté, Russ
  16. Thanks, Mr. Sam. The problem was, indeed, in the includes/languages/english/products_new.php file. In my state of googly-eyed-ness, there was an extra "?>" in there that I had overlooked or left in when copying and pasting from the installation instructions. Took out the extra characters, and now they don't appear on the page. Thanks for the guidance, my friend. You are a gentleman and a scholar. Namasté, Russ
  17. Hello. Got this contrib up and running, still need to play with the CSS for colors etc. After referring to this thread a couple times and working things out, everything appears to be working as it should, EXCEPT, on my products_new.php page, I'm getting a stray "?>" right above the banner. I've now been thru this entire thread, tinkered around with the coding myself a bit, and still no luck getting rid of that "?>" which appears to be coming from the <html <?php echo HTML_PARAMS; ?>> tag. I've compared the code to the index page, which displays properly, and they seem to be identical to my unexperienced eye. Here's the top part of the products_new.php: <?php /* $Id: products_new.php 1739 2007-12-20 00:52:16Z hpdl $ modified for thumbnail view 2007-07-24 osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions [url="http://www.oscommerce.com"]http://www.oscommerce.com[/url] Copyright © 2003 osCommerce Released under the GNU General Public License */ require('includes/application_top.php'); $HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'] = ''; unset($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id']); unset($_GET['manufacturers_id']); require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language .

    Cool Flash Carousel Menu

    Thanks a bunch, Emmetje! I checked the files you mentioned, and sure enough, I had a line or two that wasn't correct. Fixed it, got the flash running on my homepage, but the links didn't work. I applied the fix you posted a few days ago, and voila! Everything seems to be working great. Just wanted to say thanks, it's a great looking contribution, and thanks for your help in getting it working on my site. :) Russ PS - I noticed several posts here from folks who, like me, work with Flash 8, and can't open the source file for the .fla. I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd appreciate it if you could possibly add a backward-compatible version of that source file. It's still an awesome contribution, regardless!

    Cool Flash Carousel Menu

    Forgot to mention, I also get the following error in the admin section when I click on "Flash Rotator" under Catalog: 1146 - Table 'utopiawe_osc1.TABLE_ROTATOR' doesn't exist select count(*) as total from products p, TABLE_ROTATOR s, products_description pd where p.products_id = pd.products_id and pd.language_id = '1' and p.products_id = s.products_id [TEP STOP] However, that table exists, just as the "rotator" file does. I looked at both of them in file manager and via FTP. I followed the installation instructions to the letter, as far as I could tell. When I imported the sql, there was a warning message that the new table was empty or some such, other than that, everything went off without a hitch. And that wasn't a red error, just a yellow warning. Russ
